Graffiti Anyone…

My daughters and I went off exploring the city today. Lots of aimless walking down graffiti filled streets and lanes replete with sidewalk cafes, restaurants and interesting shops :).

This is Hosier Lane – a bluestone cobbled vehicular and pedestrian laneway on the southern edge of the central city grid of Melbourne. These graffiti covered walls and art-installations have become a popular backdrop for fashion and wedding photography. My eldest daughter was keen to check out some of the graffiti filled laneways in the CBD and I figured I could use it as a quick backdrop for them so…

Note: These photographs (especially the wider shots) look much better when larger – so click any of the images below to see larger versions in an inline overlay slideshow gallery viewer.

The cool bike was already here parked outside MoVida so I figured we’d make good use of it.
